A reasoned answer to my "ET visitations are ludicrous" stance

Eric Wargo, at his intellectualized site, provides an alternative to my dire projections about Earth being a back-water, not interesting enough for galactic (or universe) travelers:

  • Wargo's analysis seems to be based on the notion that "aliens traveling light-years to the earth" is ludicrous. Wargo's notion is based on the assumption that those "light years" are a huge distance even for an advanced technology. This is probably not the case of an advanced civilization.

  • I don't disagree with that possibility, Don. But even if advanced beings can transcend space and time, for instance via wormholes, why would they step through them into our reality? They'd get us to visit them, via such doorways, not the other way around. (I realized as I was finishing that post that I was just describing Clarke's 2001.)

  • Eric,

    I can't do assumptions, the way of traveling could be via wormholes or other. I can't even know if they really haven't taken some individuals to their home planet.

    I can guess that they are not gods such as to do everything they want.I guess that if the travel from their home planet to here takes 10 hours (just an example), they would not be willing to spend 20 hours taking you there and then returning you.

    Regards,

  • Extremophiles. We take great interested in understanding them and can learn a lot from them.

    We as a species use oxygen to breathe, a substance that is actually quite toxic. We also rely on water, something that has the ability to corrode metal.

    An alien species, advanced as they would be, may still be trying to understand life, how it thrives etc. To them we may be a unique type of extremophile that is worthy of such travel for study.

  • All the conjecture! Oh my. It's all assumption based on what we know as humans who have developed and evolved here on this backwater planet we call earth.
    There isn't any way for us to determine why they would visit us, if they have at all. We also cannot say what their motives would be, or what technologies they would employ (if any) to travel the vast distances of space and time.
    But it sure is fun to think about! :)

  • Daniel -
    Again we are adrift in a sea of conjecture and supposition!

    PS I'm still pissed off about the bottom-shelf drinks on that first-class flight!

    "Contact," too.

  • While we are supposing that THEY are so much like us in likely motive and intended technological advance (but far more advanced than us), may we not also suppose that they are cheap bastards? Or that their leaders/ governments are not also looking to save money by getting through as cheaply as they can?

    Just a thought,
